Abstract: Game theory, or the theory of games of strategy is a relatively new field in mathematics. Very little was said about this theory prior to 1944 and the appearance of The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior by John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern. Since that time, both theoretical and practical aspects of the theory have been developed, and applications ranging from economic problems to warfare have been investigated. The theory of linear programming, dealing with maximizing and minimizing problems, has been applied to the solution of games of strategy. Most often, however, the applications of the theory involve such extensive computation that automatic computers are required for solution.
